1. After cataract surgery... Glasses are required for clear vision...Glasses both for distance and near vision.
2. Glasses are advised 45 days after surgery
3. Other eye pain is not related to surgery
4. Keep using medicines as prescribed by your doctor and get her a pair of Glasses.
I hope this will help you
I can understand your concern.
If your mother has some amount of weak vision I think it's normal at her age.
There cannot be complete restoration of vision like how a person was as a young age.
Also the vision doesn't just involve the lens. Retina, optic nerve, and a lot of neurons in the brain also play a important role therefore it may be a problem with these growing weak.
For pain, Consult your ophthalmologist for further examination and management.
